The dirt on the road had gathered the rain.


The mud was soft and slid with every step.


Every step, took more energy than the last.


I continued on, home was not far.


The trees stepped up to the road,


getting larger the further I went.


The trees soon blocked the rain from the road.


The water dripped softly down the leaves.


My resolve hardened with the ground.


The soft light, visible between the trees, beckoned me home.


The soft touch of child and spouse welcomed me home.


The soft comfort of the bed let my weary bones rest.

Manuscript, Literature

Background: Sav Fist is a talented musician. She had come to the city with her family nearly 10 years ago. When she ventured out on her own she toured the villages of the forest. This poem records the return of a father and spouse to a farm where she was staying for a night. Her experience in the forest and empathy for the farmer's arrival inspired her to record his story from that evening. Upon her return to Etonia she had many ballads of the forest and farms of the region. She was a popular act at many of the taverns. She works now as an aide to the Council and is in charge of the heralds and town criers.
